Jace Amaro the Best Tight End in College Football?

There is no denying that Texas Tech Jace Amaro is immensely talented but is he the best in ? He has made quite the rise compared to his first two seasons in Lubbock. After posting 32 receptions for 466 yards and six touchdowns in his first two seasons, Amaro is tearing up opposing defenses. He has at least eight receptions and 86 yards in Tech's last six games.

Amaro is proving that he can be a big part of Kliff Kingsbury's as he was seventh in the nation in receptions (47). He is vastly underutilized in the , which is part of the reason he only has three scores after today's 37-27 win against West Virginia. Amaro's updated stats after the game are 56 receptions for 742 yards and three touchdowns.

The biggest controversy, if you pay attention to twitter is the fact that Amaro is not on the Mackey Award list. The Mackey Award is given out annually to the best tight end  in college football. According to the Red Raider's broadcast team on Leerfield Sports, Amaro isn't happy with the snub and he is taking out on his defenders.

As reported on earlier this week, Amaro stated he planned on coming back for his senior season. If he keeps this onslaught against the Big 12 conference, I believe that he won't be able to afford to stay. He is working his way into the discussion but it is a wait and see approach until the season ends.
